Open House NY – Self Guided Walking Tour

Self Guided Walking Tour

Visitors can download an audio walking tour of the architecture on Columbia’s Morningside Heights campus to their MP3 players. The tour is guided by Andrew Dolkart, a popular New York City architectural historian, a professor of architectural history at Columbia’s School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, and the author of an award-winning history of Morningside Heights, Morningside Heights: A History of Its Architecture and Development.

 

The tour begins at the Columbia Visitors Center, on the second floor of Low Library, and includes 21 stops at such architectural highlights as St. Paul’s Chapel, Low Library and plaza, and the late-nineteenth-century classroom Havemeyer 309, which has been used as a set in a number of feature films. The stops are numbered on a printable map (pdf) and keyed to the track numbers on the audio tour so that visitors can tailor the tour to their own interests.
